This article brings up some points that scare me worse than any 1-3 year Supply and Demand changes.

Canada has some of the most land locked ag land in the world. Just about every other major area has closer ocean access or major rivers. Central Russia would be comparable but they don't have the rockies to cross. South to the Caspian is very open land.

And many of these areas are building massive infrastructure to support it. What infrastructure have we built?

Like I said, are we the next oil sands relying too heavily in single markets, not investing in new ones and the infrastructure to support it and then we get a rude surprise somewhere down the line.

Someone has to start banging in some real infrastructure to Churchill. 4 season road and rail and a massive pipeline.

The wild card in all this is climate change.

Monette farms now own about 75 000 acres, they just bought 10,000 acres in Montana. They definitely have the debt to go with it too though

Yeah just for interest I had a look at one of their titles near me. Nope not investor backed at all like I thought. Bank backed and big time. Checked a few others around me too that have been aggressively expanding past few yrs. Yikes.

Why would you not call it a farm??? Who cares how much/little someone wants to farm ? Each to their own.

Is the bank on the title? Curious how one would know that?

I wouldn't call it a good idea to farm that much but I bet most of us and yourself included would be viewed as ridiculously big if you go back a generation or two...

In Alberta when you pull a title it shows the creditors and the amount borrowed and the date borrowed as well.

Interesting. Might make for some good banter at the coffee shop, although speculation is way more fun. Apparently I just bought a bunch of farmland near Brandon(an hour away by car!) according to the coffee shop....

Is this online or ?

Go to land titles office with the roll# or legal. Might be able to do it online or phone, bit we have office in town. Pay $15 fee (was that much the last time I did) and they will give you a copy.
